If the trailer/list bunks are built with steps in them for proper support for you step bottom Fountain then getting the boat on and off the trailer is a breeze. Right now most of your weight is being supported by the edge of the step and the last 5 feet of the boat and that will cause hull deformation...!
No never saw a video, but the boat used. What I heard in the last 2 threads really bothered me, so I crawled under the trailer today to do some close inspecting during the daylight. It seems as I was wrong about my bunks after a closer look. The backs are about 2 to 2 1/2" taller then in the front, & from underneath you can clearly see that the steps aren't even touching the bunks (about a 1/8" away). Atleast now I can rest easy knowing that its sitting correct . This has been a question/concern I've had for over a year, but never looked very hard until I heard of possible hull damage. Thanks for the added info about how it should be set-up, Jim
